Maine "Slow Rolls" Compliance with REAL ID
Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap continues the "slow roll" approach to bringing Maine into compliance with the federal REAL ID law. He has opposed the law fighting and screaming (see "Maine Becomes Last State to Tighten License Security", April 19, 2008, The New York Times) and will continue, if allowed, to ensure that Maine does NOT comply with the federal law despite the risk of terrorists, illegal immigrants, criminals, and others being able to obtain fake IDs from Maine.
